The Jesus Tree ~ Week Five

by | Feb 28, 2008 | Crafts, Jesus Tree, Jesus Tree Ornaments, Lent, Liturgical Year | 0 comments

One of the things I love about both the Jesse Tree and the Jesus Tree is they tend to make my children listen closer to the readings and Gospel at Mass. This past Sunday, my hubby took the kids since I was sick, and when he got home, the boys ran into my room and said, “Mommy!! Guess what? We don’t need to read the story for our Jesus Tree today!! We already heard it at Mass!” I said, “Are you sure it was the one for today?” They said, “Yep!! It was all about the Samaritan Woman at the well!” Well what do you know, IT WAS!! So they hung up their symbol and colored the accompanying page I had found for them.

Anyhow, here are the symbols for next week!

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
